Rory McIlroy finished in a tie for 5th


Rory McIlroy says his game wasn't quite at the level required on the final day of the US Open at Brookline.

The four-time major champion finished in a tie for fifth on two-under-par after a final round of one-under 69.

England's Matt Fitzpatrick took the title by one shot on six-under to win his first major.

McIlroy concedes he didn't play well enough to get over the line:

Leona Maguire's bid for a second LPGA Tour title fell just short at the Meijer Classic in Michigan last night.

The Cavan native forced her way into a three-way play-off after a final round of 65 helped her finish on 18-under.

But Jennifer Kupcho won the play-off with a birdie on the second extra hole.

Maguire finished in a tie for second alongside Nelly Korda.


Meath are safely through to the quarter-final stage of the All-Ireland Ladies Senior Football Championship.

Eamon Murray's side maintained their unbeaten start with a 9 points apiece draw with Armagh yesterday.

Mayo beat Cavan by a point to progress, while Dublin are also through following a 1-11 to 6 points win over Tipperary.

Elsewhere, Cork beat Donegal by 2-12 to 1-10 and Galway were 1-18 to four points winners over Westmeath.


Westmeath and Cavan will contest the first-ever Tailteann Cup final.

Both counties came through their respective semi-final ties at Croke Park yesterday.

Westmeath beat Offaly by 3-22 to 2-16, while Cavan got the better of Sligo by 20 points to 1-14.


The Republic of Ireland beat the Philippines 1-0 in their international friendly in Turkey yesterday.

Debutant Lily Agg scored the only goal of the game in the first half.

Vera Pauw's side now turn their attention to next Monday's World Cup qualifier away to Georgia.


Defending champion Max Verstappen has extended his lead in this year's driver's championship after winning the Canadian Open.

The Red Bull driver held off the challenge of second placed Carlos Sainz of Ferrari to pick up his seventh win of the season.

Second in the championship Charles Leclerc came from the back of the grid to finish fifth but is now 49 points behind Verstappen.

Lewis Hamilton finished in third to record his first podium finish since the opening race of the year.


England head coach Eddie Jones says his side have "a lot of work to do" after a heavy defeat to Barbarians.

They lost 52-21 at Twickenham - despite having a man advantage for 43 minutes.
